News and latest profiles

First version of a review of the tools we’ve used to create character portraits on writeups.org (for original characters, or those without usable visuals). Mostly it’s stuff from video games, though most of it is free or real cheap.

Since creating portraits or full-body models of original characters isn’t a rare need among various sorts of role-players.

This article is updated from time to time. See its table of content.

A big, heavily illustrated article about rifles, shotguns, submachineguns, etc. in fiction. So that’s useful to have.

This content used to be presented in the same article as Weapons Locker – Modern firearms – Chapter #2 – Small Arms, part 1. But the article was getting too big and with too many photos for slow connections and less powerful devices, so it’s better to cleave it in two.

Recent additions:
— Large-bore air rifle
— Drum-fed shotgun
— Badass tommy gun
— Badass Mosin-Nagant
— All-Inclusive Assault Carbine
— Integrally Suppressed Assault Carbine
— Four-barrelled combination gun
— Microwave gun
— Rimfire submachinegun

A young and redoubtable Amazon and Gorgon officer. She’s cool, in more ways than one.

A somewhat obscure, powerful 1970s enemy of the Justice League of America.

Otherdimensional alien feeding off fear.

Mmm, this image is very tall. I prolly should add some text here so it doesn’t feel weirdly empty, especially for people not familiar with the site. So how are y’all doing. I’m doing good. I have some delicious flan left to eat, and I love flan.

So yeah, anyway, Nekron. No, not the demon lord in Underworld Unleashed (or Underwear unwashed, according to one of our contributors who hate that crossover). The 1970s, space one.
